CHANT AVEDISSIAN: ICONS OF THE NILE

LEIGHTON HOUSE MUSEUM, LONDON
3–14 OCTOBER 1995

Chant Avedissian started his now-famous series of painted stencils in 1991, during the Gulf War. Witnessing the media coverage, and overwhelmed with feelings of powerlessness and sadness, he began to recall faces, places and symbols from his past.
